Did You Know

Fiber is crucial to promoting probiotic health. A fiber-rich diet can help feed probiotics. But how does fiber help probiotic health? 

There are four key benefits that come from eating a diet rich in fiber.

One, fiber slows the rate that sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream. When you eat foods high in fiber, such as beans and whole grains, the sugar in those foods is absorbed slower, which keeps your blood glucose levels from spiking which can lead to overeating.

Two, fiber makes your intestines work faster. When you eat whole grains rich in insoluble fiber, it moves faster through your intestines, which can tell your body that you are full.

Three, fiber cleans your colon. Fiber helps clean out bacteria and other buildup in your intestines, and reduces your risk for colon cancer.

Four, fiber helps keep you regular. A high-fiber diet helps you have soft, regular stool, reducing constipation.
